This week's Poetry Friday entry are the terrific poems from yesterday photopoetry of 15 words or less. Here was the picture:



And here are the poems
Tethered Lives
cornflakes and scales
hay bales
rabbit trails
bone rails -

we live in chains.

--- Allen Taylor
@WorldClassPoet




Don't know what it's for
But over by the door
Hole there in the floor

--- slatts




Break through.
Peer
Into the Darkness.
Or climb in
And find out what's really there.

--- Becky Levine

 


Trust, Adventure, Imagination
No one knows
what's inside a hole,
emptiness
or a world of
jabberwockies
and hobbits.

--- Diane M. Davis


 

CRAZY ARITHMETIC

one minuscule crack
+
one infinitesimal drop of moisture
+
one process of oxidization
=
one unexpected delight

--- Diane Mayr




Sunburn
Dry peeling skin
made him groan
low and eerie
like midnight's moan.

--- Cindyb


 

Aim for the next
level--
Ready?
Set?
Leap!

--- Kathy Q.

If Willy Loman Had a Sex Change
Death of a Suburban Mother and Saleswoman, circa 1950s

That iron did
me no good
I threw it
down

Done

To hell with
you

--- Pamela Ross





Never listen to sixth grade kids -

"Put your nose here,"
they said.

Sucked in!

--- Susan Stephenson





Fix - now please
For you never know
how big I will become
Maybe eternal ugliness

---  Anne McKenna

There are so many stories only you can tell.Tell them, please.

poetry friday
I'm new on LJ and just starting to network with the other writers here. This is the first time I've seen your poetry friday. I love the idea and am totally impressed with the resulting poems. I write more prose than poetry but just might have to give it a try sometime.

Re: poetry friday
Welcome to LJ and the world of Poetry Friday. I have the photopoetry prompt up for this week. (Next week it goes back to Laura.)

Lots of prose writers try it. It's such a fun warm-up.

Thanks for taking on the 15 Words or Less Poems. We get by with a little help from our friends, yes?

:-)

WHO AM I?



Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
